the USAGym faces in the gym says her mom is also one of her coaches. yet her mom is not on staff. she is not age eligible until 2024. I could see Marta sticking around another eight years for this one.
every division one ncaa gymnastics program gets the same number of scholarships. http://www.collegegymfans.com tells you who has committed where. getting big elite names only carries you so far. most of them are hobbled with injuries and NCAA is a long season
Laurie hernandez is annoying. Bridget Sloan and kytra hunter rule that team. This is Florida last year of greatness. You need two solid AA gymnasts to win national titles and huge supporting cast. They lost alania Johnson. Mackenzie caquatto and bridgey and Kennedy don’t replace those two.
Simone will go.pro before she ever gets to UCLA and kyla will end up at stanford. Kocian will be chronicle injured there but fish hano will contribute. Just my 2cents. I think Oklahoma is building the strongest most consistent program, and with Brenna Mack Brannan, Wofford, they have a strong shot this year.
Florida gymnasts even bench player like Macko’s little sis get gifts all the time. Remember BRIDGEY’S 9.950 on floor to tie real winner Oklahoma just what she needed? That was such bull shi t and do not get me started on the gifts they got during the meet.
Alex McMurtry has the potential to throw 9.9+ on every event for Florida for the next 4 years. Her gymnastics is actually very similar to Kytra, awesome on the leg events can make bars work in NCAA. She’s one of those ninja level 10 who decide to have a life over sticking with elite.
lol the hair, so true. I think I never saw any americans back than since the tv mainly focused on the best east germany, soviet and romania. But of course I followed european championships as well so that probably makes me remember more easily those from europe
Because no Romanian (or Soviet) has submitted paperwork to FIG with conflicting birth dates, specifically within 10 years of when they earned the medals. A Chinese gymnast did when she submitted paperwork to be an official for the Beijing Games. North Korea submitted conflicting birth dates on paperwork for several gymnasts while they were still competing. Kim Gwang Suk was “17” for 3 yrs in a row. The FIG caught on in year 3, lol.
After 10 years, the statute of limitations runs out and no medals will be adjusted. It doesn’t matter what the gymnast admits as to their age as long as they keep the original birthdate on all FIG paperwork until 10 years after the last medal they earned.
So GTT, Lester to the Cubs and now the Sox owners have flown in to meet with Boras about Max. I love Max but he wants $200 million and that is just more than he is worth. He’s good but not that good. I hope Detroit doesn’t knee jerk and open the checkbook for him either.
Lester is an average pitcher that has one great post season. 1 okay post season (where we lost) and one sucky post season. I wrote a blog about his career ERA which is all high 3 or in the middle 4 and no way in hell is he worth 155 million. Theo now has 1 pitcher who will benefit from being in the NL and nothing else and will still be a bad team. So Lester only wants the money and doesn’t care about winning obviously or he wouldn’t have become a Cub.
I didn’t want Lester back at this money. He isn’t worth almost 26 million a season. I have seen him pitch for like 7 or 8 years and he has a few crazy amazing games and then the rest of the time he sucks so I am fine with him leaving what pisses me off is the speech he gave the media last season before the trade where he talks about not needing a big contract where he talks about going somewhere he feels comfortable about how it isn’t about the money and then he goes and takes the biggest offer to play for a team that literally is one of the worst teams in the league.
People continue to act like he would have signed last year for less money which is a big fat lie and they continue to blame the owners for wanting to negotiate but its okay for Lester to negotiate by leaving 4 teams in the lurch so he can have his ego pumped up. That just pisses me off.
Looks like the Sox are going back to the way of the 90’s and having great hitting with suspect pitching good enough to make the post season but not win it all but this sad pathetic starting 5 we have right now is a complete joke. But like I have said before, we cannot win every year and how do you fault a n owner that has 150 million dollar payroll every year which means they are obviously attempting to win? My answer is you can’t. Well you can and I probably will a few times during the season but in the end I know they are doing more than any other team in the league to win and I guess that will be enough. Till teh season starts and I get pissed because we cannot win:)
After seeing all these deals, I have to wonder what the Sox infield defense is like, cause so far, your entire rotation is all primarily groundball pitchers. It only takes one or two balls getting out of the infield for an avalanche of an inning to start.
Just going off memory Pedroia is awesome. Panda has good range for a big guy and I am pretty sure Napoli has been very good. SS wise I am not sure who we will have playing there when all is said and done. Xander I guess and he will be our hmmmm.
In the past we have had pitchers like that (Derek LOWE comes to mind) and we have been fine for the most part but we had a different infield back then. Last year with all the rookies we had some bad bad defense but also some amazing defenses by Brock Holt who better still be here when all is said and done or I will be mad.
Oh my…Cespedes for Porcello? I think that works out for both teams actually. You get a young starter and we get a legit outfielder, needs filled on both sides. Both players are in their last year before free agency too.
I think you’ll like Rick. He’s a good guy and decent pitcher. He is a contact pitcher though so hopefully he’ll continue his success outside the spacious confines of Comerica. And he’s been durable.
Hard to say. I’m a little nervous about Cespedes and the buzz about his attitude but hopefully Miggy and Victor can keep him in line. Love his bat in our lineup though. Our rotation looks interesting now: Price, Verlander, Sanchez, Greene and Simon from the Reds. And now you’re up to Bucholz, Porcello, Masterson, Miley & I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Sox get Shields when all is said and done. Max is a Yankee…wish they’d just cut the bull and get it over with.
I am guessing it’s because Jordyn probably stopped training completely and we’ve never really seen her where she was completely out of the gym for a long period of time because she was still training at UCLA during her freshman year
Ooooo interesting. I think that means she’s level 10 now. I know around here season has been underway for about a month, but not every one did an “early meet”. And there aren’t any elite level meets in a month, right?
Apparently Komova’s back in Germany for another surgery – cyst removal? – and though VRod said that Grishina would be competing at the Voronin Cup, that is also not true. Grishy wasn’t even in Russia when the announcement was made. Reporting fail.
Great interview!! It’s clear to see why she and Simone were such good friends…both seem kind, level-headed and relatively well adjusted. It pisses me off that Valerie may have ruined her shoulder for good, but at least she had time to figure out what she wanted from gymnastics. She is a smart girl.
Now this is where a tumblr would come in handy. I could say, what you mean a child abuser who allows other child abusers to ignore the physical well being of a child in favor of making her train while sick?
Mckayla sent a series of very cryptic tweets regarding her current status in gymnastics. She said she hasn’t quit/retired, but that a personal medical issue came up and she didn’t want to make it public. I’ll link to her page so you guys can read for yourselves.
She only really got a lot of attention through gymnastics, and I’m guessing since that most likely is over that’s the reason she’s been posting all of these suggestive pictures of herself like “oh look how pretty I am.” That girl needs to tone it down. When is she 18 again? I’m actually quite afraid for her because there’s a lot of freaks out there. At least her daddy’s a lawyer.
